Regrets...I have but one

Tears of anger, tears of sorrow,
tears of yesterday are wasted
on tomorrow.

Forget me not, for I was here!
Forget me not my Darlings  
and shed not a single tear.

We played in the white sand,
and fished in the crystal
clear lakes, and blew out
the bright colored candles
on many birthday cakes.

We sang in the sunshine,
counted the evening stars
and dreamed of our many
bright tomorrow’s.

We grew up and went
our separate ways. A letter
now and then. Phone calls
are few and far away.

Now time has passed us by,
as I sit here wondering how
and why.

Regrets…I have but one!
I wish I could do it all over
again with all of you in
that bright Florida sun.
